Googly Eyes Bring Life To Broken Streets

Googly eyes are pretty awesome. There’s something about the crude, cartoonish depiction of an eye that adds life to everything they’re put on. One Bulgarian street artist, Vanyu Krastev, takes a very simple approach to his work: He takes something he comes across—usually something that’s broken down in an urban environment—and humanizes it by sticking a pair of eyes on it.

“Tell me you saw that too!”

“Why don’t they just carry more coins?”
Long-nosed door handle

“I’ll never tell.”
Confused watering can

“Well, the thing is…”
Hungry trash container

“Feed me.”
Happy pipe

Shocked electrical panel

“The horror!”
Skeptical stump

Horrified pipe

Concerned barrier

“People still sit on me.”
Devious trash can

“Oh yeah, built-in recycling and everything!”
Lonely jug

“When will I ever be fulfilled?”
Dumbfounded pole

“Well, I never!”
Stern door
